For Circulation on The Waters of Civic Finance:
Once again, the International James Joyce Foundation will be awarding six or more scholarships to aid graduate students who plan to attend the International James Joyce Symposium (in 2016 to be held in London, June 13-18). More information about the conference is located at http://anniversaryjoyce.com/.
The deadline for applications for the scholarships is Feb 15, 2016. Applicants need not be members of the Foundation; any graduate student working on Joyce may apply. The award is for $1000, though applicants traveling long distances may be eligible for increased funding.
Applicants (who must be graduate students when they apply, although they may have completed their work by the time of the award) should send a one-page summary of a book, M.A. thesis, or Ph.D. dissertation, including a specific description of the work that has already been done on Joyce as well as future plans, and a brief statement about how the work would be presented at the Symposium. Students should also send a c.v. The student should request that two letters of recommendation be sent by the deadline; these recommendations will be an important element being evaluated by the committee judging the applications. Recommendations may be mailed to the IJJF office; the statement and the c.v. should be sent both in a hard copy and electronically. Materials should be sent to the International James Joyce Foundation at the following address:

Faculty members are urged to encourage their qualified students to apply.
